New Comfort Mods For Pimax Head Strap. Available To Buy Now

Can you post a pic or tell us what you did.
Thanks

I just found a common helmet counterweight that military uses to balance the weight of the front night vision on ebay, they are very cheap and use velcro, so I used an adhesive velcro strap on the DAS to attach, but they also have this: https://www.counterbalancevr.com/

Do you have tracking info for the US? Haven’t seen mine yet and was wondering when it might arrive.

Thanks

Please send me your order number to studioformcreative@gmail.com

I bought the Pimax Strap 01.03.2019 cant wait to feel tight fit around my Head :smiley:

Straps arrived today @Davobkk, thank you very much!

I can only test my Lenovo one until the 5k+ arrives, but the improvement is much greater than I imagined. Got the strap into a good position very quickly, the headset now fits significantly more comfortably by resting more on the top of my head (strap material is very good), drops into the sweet spot more easily, and I don’t need to set it painfully tight against my forehead any more!

I’m certain I can comfortably use it now for much longer - great work, thanks again :+1:

Hi i ordered myne on 01.03.2019 when does it get shipped? :smiley: i caaaaaant wait :smiley:

i sent an Email with my transaction Paypal Number @ studioform Email

I was amongst the first who bought the strap for the DAS but the 5K+ didn’t arrive until like three weeks ago. I immediatly installed the DAS and the apache strap. I did not find the thread about it anymore to give feedback though.

This strap is great! The DAS gave me a headache (litterally) when using it with the vive. I could not wear it for mnore than 30 minutes. I think it put pressure on some bein or something - I never found the cause of this. I tried mounting it in so many different ways.
I wear it with the back pretty far down. The Pimax is slight lifted up front because with my headshape this eliminates distortion. With the strap it is as easy as using a cap basically. No pain, no destortions - fits like a glove. I can recommend it to everyone.

Had mine for a week or so, didn’t have the time to try it out until today, but damn!
Makes it both more comfortable and faster to get the HMD into the right position.
A big plus to the shipping , took about a week to get to me in Sweden, and half that time was at the customs.
Neat packaging to.

Thank you for an awesome product @Davobkk

Didn’t have much time trying the strap before sending my 5k+ in for rma. Now that i got my replacement 5k+ back I gave it a proper adjustment.

Now its much more comfy and more like a helmet you just slide on.

I also just taped the 6mm vive vrcover to the pimax foam to make it thicker and proper distance for my face shape. Works well, a bit rough but i dont care.

DAS doesn’t fit me well so this is a cool alternative.

Overall a good product @Davobkk

Nice tape job :slight_smile: Hows the new unit going?

It is what the first 5k+ should have been. No black dots. If these were the first units sent out then a lot of complaints would have been avoided so is the negative publicity.

Casing needs more time to see if there is actual improvement but im ready to move on if it happens again, for me it’s a risk with kickstarter, im not going to lose my mind over it lol.

Another thing is the pimax das might not fit me as well when it’s released. im sure your strap will come in handy in time.

That’s good news. We should catchup again at some stage! I hope this headset keeps going strong

Can you PM your delivery address. I’ll send you the correct strap for your Pimax :wink: You need the Pimax Deluxe

The “studioform” tag looks great!

I’m still really loving your strap… no doubt about it makes the Pimax headset far more comfortable with the VIVE DAS. There’s no way I could ever go back without it. I’m really hoping that it will also fit the Pimax’s DAS once they begin sending them out…if not, you’ll have to create a new one!!!
